Four Menlo Park break-ins in one week

As-of-yet unidentified thieves crept through an unlocked back window of a home in the 500 block of Glenwood Avenue in Menlo Park on the afternoon of Wednesday, Aug. 10, and left with an estimated $8,200 in jewelry and an Apple MacBook.

Burglars also busted the side window of a home in the 200 block of Marmona Drive on Monday, Aug. 8. The resident reported the theft around 3:15 p.m. and told police a monitor, digital camera, docking station, Wi-Fi device, iPad, jewelry, and $300 cash — worth about $7,600 total — were missing.

The past week included two other burglary reports in Menlo Park; one in the 1100 block of Windermere Drive and another in the 1300 block of Almanor Avenue, both on Aug. 4.
